The hills of Mendocino County make for some challenging biking. And the cyclists of the Mendocino Monster Century Ride have signed up to tackle them. The Rotary Club of Ukiah fundraiser has three different rides. The Scary Monster is nearly 100 miles and includes 10,320 feet of climbing, while the Hairy Monster is 62 miles and involves 8,150 feet of pedaling up. Both take bikers through picturesque panoramas, redwood groves, and pastoral landscapes, but the former also travels along the Pacific Ocean. The shortest race is the Merry Monster, which is 39 miles with 834 feet of climbing, and follows roads with views of vineyards. The races are on June 9 and cost $50-$85 to enter. Register at
